Blogging renovation part 2: Middle

Published July 6th, 2015

Sub-floor repaired

A few glitches so far along the way, but our renovations are proceeding generally pretty well. We’re probably 90% done upstairs, with some minor basement bathroom work and a couple landings left to tile.

Briefly About


My passions are animals, health and fitness (and my family first); I'm a cyclist and runner at heart. A lot of what ends up on this site pertains to those things. I gravitate to things that are grounded, pragmatic, logical, accessible and free from dogma. Beyond that, I'm a Higher Education web monkey. Many years ago I used to play drums and work in technical theatre. I still do the former (though not organized, as in, part of a band at this time), while my theatre days are long, long behind me.
